Manchester United dropped Falcao for Sunday’s Premier League game against Everton.
The Colombian striker’s future is a matter of constant speculation and the loan signing from Monaco dropped to the bench again having started in the 1-0 defeat to Chelsea last weekend.
Dutch midfielder Daley Blind was his replacement in the team Van Gaal took to Goodison Park.
Van Gaal said on Sunday that he would have to talk with Falcao after the striker failed to make the expected impact at United.
